Harris, George (Duke) Francis of Sarnia

George “Duke” Harris
February 25, 1942 – August 2, 2017

It is with a broken heart we announce, after a courageous battle recovering from heart surgery,
Duke lost his fight. Duke is survived by his wife of 55 years, Eleanor Harris, daughter Kimberly Drury and son-in-law Brad Drury. He was the best ‘Pazzy’ to his pride and joy to his grandchildren Lauren Drury (Brad Hodgson) and Aaron Drury and his special great- grandson Hunter Hodgson. Duke was predeceased by parents George and Elsie Harris, in-laws Lee and Fred Martin, brothers Bill and Bob Maughan and son Bob Harris (March 2005). Having been born in his parent’s home on Alfred Street, Duke was proud of his Point Edward lineage. Duke played Junior Hockey first in Sarnia for the Sarnia Legionnaires where they won the Junior B Championship, then in St. Catherine’s with the Tee Pees winning a Memorial Cup Championship and went on to have a career in the Western Hockey League, American Hockey League and World Hockey Association, highlighted by two championships; the first in Vancouver with the Canucks, and the second in Rochester with the Americans. Following Duke’s retirement from hockey he was fortunate to join Sarnia Cranes, where he spent 25 years as a crane operator. Duke retired in 2005 to become a full time cab-driver for his grandchildren. ‘Pazzy’ never failed to answer the call for a ride, an errand, or whatever Lauren and Aaron needed. Duke loved his vacations in Florida with the “Point Gang” and not too many days went by without a drive to the St. Clair River to make sure the water was flowing in the right direction! Hey Buds, we will miss your quick wit and old storytelling. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at the D. J. Robb Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Tuesday, August 8th at 11:30 am. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 10:00 a.m. until time of service. Memorial donations made to London Health Sciences Centre “Cardiac Surgery Recovery Unit”, Canadian Mental Health Association or Charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

“A special thank-you to the entire staff of Cardiac Care ICU at the University Hospital in London,
especially Dr. Mary Lee Myers. The entire team offered excellent care to Duker and the rest of
our family.”

VIOLET FRANCES “CAM” ADLAM – It is with deeply saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Violet Frances “Cam” Adlam on Friday, March 24th, 2017 at Bluewater Health in Sarnia at the age of 101 years. She was the loving wife of the late Ernest Maxted “Ted” Adlam (1990) and dear mother of Maxted Adlam and his wife Sandra of Sarnia, David Adlam and his wife Violet of South Houston, Texas. Grandmother of: Karen, Kristen, Deborah, Christopher and Timothy. Great-grandmother of: Amber, Brandon, Brinley, Britton, Max and Sam. She was predeceased by her parents Catherine Campbell and Horace Wyndham Rodda, her son Max (2016) and his wife Sandy (2015). Her mother’s ill health forced her to place Violet into an adoptive family until she reached her early teens. Her father, Mr. Rodda, a member of the State Staff of the Royal Household, helped her obtain a position at Buckingham Palace. She delighted in relating how she sat on the king’s throne when no one was looking. In 1949 she emigrated from England on the liner RMS Aquitania, shepherding her two boys to Canada where she met up with her husband who had arrived earlier. She was a fixture for years at the Village Variety store in Point Edward and was well-known and well-loved by the community. Friends are welcome to visit with the family at the funeral home on Thursday, March 30th, between the hours of 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Funeral services will be held at the D. J. Robb Funeral Home & Cremation Centre (102 N. Victoria St., Sarnia) on Friday, March 31st, 2017 at 1:00 pm. Cremation will follow and interment will be held later at Lakeview Cemetery. Memorial donations to the Canadian Red Cross Society would be appreciated by the family. Memories and messages of condolence may be sent through www.djrobb.on.ca
